Manoj Kaimal

Posted by huihsien on 01 Dec 09

Manoj Kaimal has practically lived and breathed yoga his entire life. Born in Kerala and raised in a family with deep roots in the yoga tradition, he was exposed to yoga at a very young age and personally coached by his grandfather, Mr. Shri Sridhara Shankara Kaimal. At 15, Manoj undertook a teachers training program at the world-renowned Sivananda Ashram and continued to seek further understanding of yoga through studies of other various aspects. His burning passion took him across India to explore teachings of revered masters like B.K.S Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois.

The approach that Manoj adopts in the classes integrates the principles of distinct yoga styles from his vast experience, with the authentic hatha form traditionally taught in India. His classes are popular among those seeking more than a physical workout as he also imparts the wisdom of yoga philosophy in accordance to the ancient Indian scriptures. Manoj believes that the body, breath and awareness are tools to realise one’s infinite inner potential. He aspires to guide his students to achieve this by instilling in them, the essence of yoga in its purest form.

Manoj is not only a successfully yoga teacher and studio owner but also has two books (‘Celebration of Asanas’ and ‘Making Patanjali Palatable’) published under his name. In the bid to promote the therapeutic benefits of yoga, he regularly gives talks at various health events. He also conducts teacher training courses and runs yoga workshops relating to body anatomy and ancient scriptures.
